FACES OF CEBU: Jericho delos Santos, 22, visual artist


CEBU CITY, Philippines—Here’s a beautiful side hustle by a talented young visual artist from Lapu-Lapu City. 

Jericho Delos Santos, 22,  a college student and a talented visual artist, is making waves online because of his cut-out illustrations. 

After Miss Universe top five finalist Beatrice Luigi Gomez brought home another win for the country, he was able to make creative digital art with his cut-out illustrations. 

“I am into visual arts. I usually do drawings like fashion and cut-out illustrations, digital arts and I also do crafts like making barbie clothes and costumes,” he said.

Jericho’s talent is not just for his social media accounts but has also helped him in raising money to support his studies. 

“ I even earned money for my studies because of it,” he added. 

His love for arts was influenced by his late father, Jonnifer delos Santos, who is also a painter and a visual artist.

He said that the most trending art pieces he did were made back in 2019. 

“This is my first cut-out illustration 3 years ago. I made this after Catriona Gray won Miss Universe. I didn’t expect it would reach 35k shares on Facebook,” Jericho recalled. 

Just recently, Jericho did another art show for his followers and fans. This time, he made barbie dolls look like Sinulog festival dancers and called them “Tribu Barbie.”
